Start charging for visits to museums and galleries.

Comment 6th July 2010

Normally, I would be the last person to advocate such a scheme, but these are tough times. As a regular visitor to London’s great places of cultural interest, I’m dismayed to see that the vast majority of visitors are foreign tourists; it’s insane they should all be granted access without making a single contribution. People receiving benefits though, must continue to receive free admission. Assuming we ever recover from this economic mess, the charging system could be reviewed, but for now, everyone who can afford to make a modest payment should do so.

Why does this matter?

It’s truly awful that the Government can no longer find the money to fund our schools’ re-building program (making cutbacks in education, in any form, is wholly short-sighted) and the extra revenue generated by charging for museum visits may help in some way.
